This obviously incomplete list has recently emerged: Morning Dew ; Cryptical Envelopment > The Other One > Good Morning Little Schoolgirl
This has circulated as 5-29-69, though it seems much more likely to be from the 11th. Deadbase lists Canned Heat & Santana as sharing the billing with the Dead for the 11th. Deadlists.com lists a partial setlist for 5-11-69, from Dew through Schoolgirl. A radio announcer can briefly be heard speaking of Canned Heat during the Cryptical Reprise. The guests almost certainly include multiple percussionists from Santana, their singer briefly during Lovelight, and some guitar from Carlos Santana, though his contributions seem low in the mix and infrequent.
The lineage is unknown, although the radio announcers would indicate this being from a radio broadcast. There are probably several analog generations, but quality improves towards the end and is listenable. There is a brief dropout in volume level during the Cryptical Reprise. The first few notes of Me & My Uncle have been clipped as radio announcers were talking. The cut at the beginning of Alligator is minor.

video of show
There's a 7 minute video from this show with New Potato Caboose dubbed over it. Jerry is totally fired up - well worth seeing!

On the day that I was born
The Grateful Dead played at the Aztec Bowl. 5/11/69 my birthday. Funny, in all the years on archive I never bothered to look up the date.

Not a Deadhead, but...
I was at this concert and just stopped by to fill in some blanks. I'm interested in listening to it because at the time, I certainly ``got'' Santana -- which was indeed called the Santana Blues Band and had just recently started touring; they were mind-boggling -- but the Dead set left me unimpressed. Probably didn't get 'em in the same way. Also it was a very warm day.
Also on the bill that day, besides the local band Tarantula, was Lee Michaels and his drummer Frosty.

Almost gave this 5 stars.
The sound's a little shaky, & there are a lot of cuts, but it was obviously a great show.

My first Dead show
What a day! As others have noted, Canned Heat, Santana and if I recall corectly, a band called Tarantula.
The Dead/Santana jam was amazing in reality. The Dead sort of joined Santana as they finished and Santana members gradually left until it was just The Dead. I believe this was Santana's first major appearance in San Diego and they were still known as the Santana Blues Band.
Maybe someone at KPBS, which has radio and TV on campus, might find a recording in an archive somewhere. This date does have some historical importance for San Diego, The Grateful Dead, and Santana.

was there anybody there that took some video of that concert, i was there. :>
Happily, I was at the show, which took place on Mother's Day 1969. It was broadcast live on KPRI 106.5 San Diego. As I recall I was working for KDEO at the time. Somewhere out there someone has a very good tape of this. A highlight was a Dead/Santana Jam.
